Rich Hill Gets Hit in the Neck By Pitch

Postado Agosto 13, 2017

Rich Hill was taken to the hospital after he was hit in the throat by a pitch in Friday's game. He left the game with the Dodgers trailing 3-1 through five, but they rallied to beat the Padres 6-3.

However, anticipating a throw to the plate, Seager headed for second base and got caught in a run down between first and second. X-rays were negative and doctors weren't able to find anything wrong with Hill, who said his breathing was never affected.

Ryu walked two and struck out five in his seventh no-decision in 17 starts.

One inning later, Cody Bellinger added a much-needed insurance run with his 34 long ball of the season.

It was also the 16th home run allowed by Ryu in 2017, his single season career high.

An inning later, San Deigo starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin, helped his own cause when he knocked in the go-ahead run with an RBI single to right field.

With two outs in the fifth, Wil Myers launched a solo shot to right center to give the Padres a 3-1 lead.

Overall, the Dodgers pitching staff leads the Major Leagues with a 3.12 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP, while leading the national league in strikeouts with 1,100.
